That's one way to keep the tank sensors from getting gunked up.

I suspect I'd soon be in divorce court if I told my spouse she could not use the facilities to the fullest extent.

Too bad you wasted your money on something you don't use. It's not going to be worth anymore when you sell it either.

The #1 must have when we bought our current MH was 2 toilets. One is a macerator & one is a standard dump. We LOVE them & have NO issues with dumping, cleaning, smell, etc. Yes, we use 2-ply regular tp, keep the valves closed until at least 2/3 full & add some sensor treatment + lots of water when we begin a drive.
I have met folks that think dumping the tanks is such a horrible, stinky, messy job that they would never use the toilets if it means having to do that. Unfortunately I have heard this most often from other women. If that is your opinion I suggest you learn how.
Yes, I'm a woman & yes, I dump tanks.
We would NEVER consider this life if it meant using other facilities.

I travel, cook, eat, sleep, poop, pee, and even puke in my RV as needed, whenever needed, as often as I see fit. NO chemicals of any kind, minimal water flushes, use whatever TP my cheeks desire (limited to 3 roll to floor wipes per use), use the fan to dissipate immediate aromas, rarely use the tank washers/rinsers and yes, I am a full-timer and never have smell, clog, dumping, or any sanitary/sewer issues of ANY kind.

I really enjoy reading these threads and marvel at the trials-and-tribulations that others impose on their thrones! Dumping is such a NON-issue in my little world.

Of course, your three alarm chilli mix may vary...

Oh for those of you who dont think I know how to use my moho. We've been rving for 21 years I have always done my own maint. and repairs. Have worked on 3 of them and they never saw the inside of a repair shop. Think I know it pretty well and yes I have replaced a couple of toilets in them. Havent had to repair engines or transmissions and wont. But still know them pretty well. Ive never seen folks get so bent out of shape because my wife and I choose not to use the head for full bodily functions..But I have a good sense of humor and wish you all..Happy Trails and God Bless..

Ok, it's a freezing rain at 2:30AM with the wind blowing at 20-30 MPH. You have Montezuma's Revenge, just have to "go" and the CG outhouse is 100 yards away. What to do, what to do...
